Again?

I awoke on Saturday morning to yet another snowfall. The village was covered in a thin layer of dry snow and it was still snowing big dry flakes - a repeat of last weekend. The new snow didn’t last long and by midday was pretty much melted.

Today I went for a look out behind Eagles Nest and was surprised to see how much snow has disappeared in the last week (click here to see last Sunday). Even more surprised considering how cold it has been here the last few nights. Last night it went as low as –9C on the mountain.

It is probably good to get these snowfalls over and done before Snowy Ride - 5000 motorcycles and snow don’t mix.

The village is very quiet. There’s not even the buzz of flies to annoy you (yet). The forecast is for mostly fine and mild weather.

Don’t forget to do your bit to return Kosciuszko Park entry fees back to something reasonable? Click here. Annual passes are now $190 - well and truly more than double last year's fee of $88.
